Back Yard Chickens!

    I remember my grandmother's chickens.  I loved going to collect eggs.  Never even thought I would ever own a chicken...unil...I went to a neighbors home, and I heard peeping going on in her...kitchen!   I asked, what is that noise?  I think I hear birds cheeping.   She simply explains that she went to the feed store and bought some pullets.  What?   Yes, we have chickens in the back yard.  I looked at the babies..then went out and looked at her simple set up.  I almost ran all the way home to tell my DH all about it!   That's all she wrote.  He built me a wonderful... read more

  History Serama originate in the Malaysian state of Kelantan, apparently through the crossing of Japanese and Malaysian bantams.[1] Other stories of the birds derived from a gift of some small chickens by the King of Thailand to a local sultan in ancient times. Small chickens have always been popular pets in this area and are often referred to as "ayam katik" (pygmy chickens) and "ayam cantik" (pretty chickens). The modern breed is attributed to the efforts of Wee Yean Een from Kelantan, who named the breed "Serama" after Rama, the title of the Kings of Thailand.[1]... read more

BunnynChicks Chicken Page warning pic heavy.

They are quite skittish and are scared of people (unless they are carrying treats.)   I have a single buff orpington hen. She is a good egg layer and I get a egg a day from her. She... read more

A Day in the Life of the Moonrise Sunshine Chickens

     As the sun begins to set and the moon rises, a high pitched buzz can be heard rising up from the swamps. Bat food, mosquitos, are out looking for dinner. The frogs sound like a loud chorus of undulating instruments, rising and falling in pitch and volume as the different sized amphibians join and drop out of the performance. When the skies are clear, the moon shines so bright that you can see the chickens roosting in their favorite high places.  Every night you can hear the echo of owls hooting across the still swamp waters and if you listen very closely, you might... read more
